Google Experimental Search: Use Keyboard Shortcuts to Navigate Search Results

Google has launched a new page with several experimental search interfaces. One organizes search results in a timeline or on a map. Another adds extra search options to either the left or right side of search results to let you search patents, products, or the news in addition to the web.

By far the most useful experimental interface lets you navigate search results using keyboard shortcuts. Users familiar with the Gmail or Google Reader keyboard shortcuts will find the keys very familiar.

You press J to select the next result, or K to select the previous. Hitting O or Enter opens the selected result. / focuses the cursor in the search box, and Esc removes it.

This is a definite keeper for fast, mouseless navigation.
